Someone I met in Spain once told me: get ready, because 1-2 years after you graduate from college, a flood of people will be getting married. Then, it will die down as those people will start popping out kids. Then, a surge of weddings will happen when you turn 30.

I am definitely feeling the first flood!

I actually felt my first flood right out of high school, because our school happened to have a lot of Mormon kids. But this! This time, it's a little more crazy, because it has been literally one after another!

So, yesterday, my good friend got engaged in front of all of his friends. He did it very well. He basically asked one of his friends to convince his now fiance to plan a surprise birthday party for him (which was yesterday) so that he can turn it around and purpose to her in front of everyone. Champagne and good beer made me a cry baby. Well, I mean, the general happiness that my friend got engaged to such a nice girl helped with the tears as well. I suppose. haha.

Another friend of mine, who is also part of this pack of dudes I've known for a while, also got engaged, and is getting married in the fall. My other friend with an adorable baby got married and is planning her wedding. My co-worker also recently got engaged about a month ago, and also, getting married in the fall.


Whenever engagements are announced and there is another non-engaged couple around, I always imagine that the guy is sweatin' bullets, fearing that his chica is imagining their wedding. And believe me, they probably are. Because girls are bat-shit-crazy like that. Even if you've only been together for a week, if the idea is present, she will imagine your wedding. Or, at least, how she will look like in a wedding dress. Chances are, if she's actually not that into you, she's just imagining herself as a bride.

Either way, it's way too much to think about. I usually just think of a dress to wear to other people's weddings. A green one. Nice one. Rouched. I like rouched dresses.

Some events.

I saw a very very good friend of mine propose to his girlfriend of 6 years. It was set so perfectly, I couldn't help but cry a river of joy. The bride-to-be must have been the only one crying more than me. People are getting married left and right. ( In fact, today, I am going to a wedding reception.) But lately, the people who are getting engaged are people who should be getting engaged. As in, I'm not thinking " What the fuuuuuuuuuuck are you thinking," when they tell me they're getting married. Let me tell you, I've heard about and been to weddings where I was filled with doubts the entire time.

For work-related reasons, I accidently walked to Skid Row by myself. Not just Skid Row, but the heart of Skid Row, on 6th and San Julian. What I saw there is an entirely seperate entry, let me tell you.

I've been running. What my plans are, I'm not really ready to decide.

Natural Selection

Spring is here, and the baby birds from the nest in our backyard have hatched. I could hear them, especially during the day.

Every couple of years, birds build nests in our backyard because we have several trees. Nice wholesome image, right? It is, until my dog eats the little ones that jump out of the nest when they're practicing how to fly. It's a great example of natural selection.

Let's see who survives this year.
